lyrics

Wake up in the morning
It's time to face reality
I can't help wondering 
How did I ever end up here?
Form a neat line
Because it's time to take your pills
Watch the Don Quixotes
As they battle their windmills

So I'm hanging out here
With my angel in the cuckoo's nest
We're swapping our stories about
How life is a fucked up mess
I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly
There's bars on the windows 
In case I really wanna try

They'll loosen the straps
If you promise not to bite
They'll prick you with needles
If you insist to fight
There's a ginger genius
That says she's the architect around here
Let's go out on the balcony
Maybe smoke will make our minds clear

So I'm hanging out here
With my angel in the cuckoo's nest
We're swapping our stories about
How life is a fucked up mess
I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly
There's bars on the windows 
In case I really wanna try

Let's sit in a circle and tell our woeful tales
No one can help you
If you refuse to help yourself
I'll draw an angel for you
And a demon for me
We can laugh at all the in-jokes
In our tragic poetry

So I'm hanging out here
With my angel in the cuckoo's nest
We're swapping our stories about
How life is a fucked up mess
I'm feeling so high that I could almost fly
There's bars on the windows 
In case I really wanna try

Because everything's fine
As long as I'm here

But where are you?
Where have you gone?
